Hazardous Choices

Greetings, GoodKindles readers! I am proud to announce the release of
my second ebook, Hazardous Choices. Darnell Jackson is a young
African-American man living in a gang-infested area of Chicago. To
save his life, he joins a gang and is forced to do things he abhors.
When an opportunity to escape this deadly world is offered to him, he
accepts gladly. A football scholarship to a small rural Kentucky
college could be his ticket out and a life free of violence and fear.
But will his gang let him go, and worse, when they find out he lied to
them to break away, will they retaliate?

Book Description: After surviving life in a violent Chicago street
gang through his high school years, Darnell Jackson's future appears
promising. A football scholarship gives him the chance to escape the
thug lifestyle.

During his first year in college, Darnell safely resides in a small
Kentucky town, playing Division Two college football and trying to
make something of himself. Adjusting to the new surroundings proves
tough, but a teammate and a girl give him hope that his future will be
better than his past.

In the summer after his freshman year, he returns to the old
neighborhood to be with his mother. The gang reasserts its hold on
him, and the leader orders Darnell to kill a member of a rival gang.
Nearly dying in a gang fight, Darnell shoots an enemy gangbanger. This
forces Darnell to re-evaluate his future. As a result, he lies to the
mercurial leader of his gang, claiming he completed his assignment.
After "doing work" for his gang, Darnell receives permission to head
back to school and the security of small-town life.

When the head gangbanger learns of Darnell's lie, the small Kentucky
town isn't so safe any more.
